    Cockpit2Cockpit eLearning Course

    Cockpit2Cockpit eLearning Course

    Transitioning from the military to the airlines is much more than just changing your uniform one day.

    If you are making a transition from the military to the airlines, then this is going to be a useful episode for you. Marc Himelhoch wrote a best-selling book, Cockpit2Cockpit that illustrates a 30,000-foot view of what to expect during your transition from military to airline.

    They have turned the best-selling book into an e-learning course to continue to serve pilots who are joining the rapidly-changing airline industry.

    Dan McCalister worked as an airforce pilot for many years and struggled to make his transition to the airlines. When he did land that airline job, he started working as an interview coach for other pilots. He realized that military aviators need a resource that maps out that roadmap towards the next phase of their career.

    In this episode, we talk about the new course, what you can expect to learn from it, and who will benefit most from it. We also share some tips for pilots looking to get their first position at an airline.



    In This Episode

    6:19 - A preview and breakdown of the new course

    11:37 - At what point in your military career should you take the course

    15:05 - How to prepare for a job fair

    21:36 - Social media tips for the job hunt



    Check out the Cockpit2Cockpit course
